I think he may be the first of many. My son, who has christened this wee fella “Stretchylegs” has requested another robot, this one with wheels and a bigger head.
My son also “helped” with this project, so it was quite a sweet way to spend some time together. I am asking my daughter for some ideas too so that she can get involved.
I haven’t done any toys or amigurumi type projects in a while and it always surprises me how the critter takes on a personality of its own as soon as the face is put on. Maybe that is why the face is so hard to get right. As a first robot, and one that came entirely from my the imagination of my 4 year old son, I am pretty pleased. I will post his friends as soon as they are “born!”
